    *sigh*
    Guess we can be thankful it isn't in Detroit.

    Doug, I was on the MCA website at 9:00 PM PDT sharp last evening. Saw Ron Bramlett's video. In a way I was hoping that the east and west events would be a couple of weeks apart so us MAA'ers could caravan between the two. Now the big decision, be a big bad road warrior and head for Charlotte and what will undoubably the bigger of the two events or take life easy and do the run to Sin City. They both have their merits and we have plenty of time to sort it out in our minds.

    Vic -

    I have very mixed emotions about this 2 show idea . . . I think it stinks!

    I think it was Ron who indicated that perhaps Ford also was going to have a celebration sometime later in 2014 . . . may wait until we hear those plans before deciding!

    Vegas would be the least expensive choise if one stays away from the casinos, but Charolette might be the better show, longer, more fun trip, and perhaps more of those friends from other countries we've met along the way.

    Time will tell.

    Grrrr they could so easily have the best of both worlds.
    Fri/Sat show in Vegas (weekend 1)...Sunday the run to Charlotte beings...
    5 day trip with a Thursday arrival (weekend 2).

    I'll talk to Ron if I can. Remind him of his father's collectable room at Mustangs Plus...FULL of Coke displays
    Nice tie in to the biggest corporate blunder talk in business schools to help him understand the point....2 shows great idea just not executed right.
    We do NOT need a "new" coke when it comes to the 50th Mustang Birthday....

    Lets meet in the middle the weekend before for kick off party in Mustang Oklahoma. The wild horse park in Mustang is almost exactly in the middle. What a better way to kick off the celebration.
